Healthy Ramen Noodle Salad is not only healthy and tasty, but it is super simple to make too!

To be clear, this is not a make ahead salad! The leftovers are delicious…but the texture will change a little bit…but still very good!!! I often take this dish to parties ! I usually put it together an hour or so before a party and the taste and crunchy texture of the toasted ramen noodles is delicious! If you do need to make ahead, prep everything, and then add ramen noodles and dressing last minute! If you are making for meal prep, portion little sides of dressing!

My original recipe I’ve used for years for this salad, calls for sugar and canola oil. As much as I love this salad, I was determined to find a way to lighten it up a little bit! Lakanto Monkfruit (sugar replacement) and avocado oil, give this salad a healthy upgrade!

This recipe makes enough for about 6 people to have as a side dish! If taking it to a BBQ or a party, I would for sure double the recipe! The recipe doubles and triples beautifully !

  1. To make the dressing: Combine the avocado oil, vinegar, monkfruit sweetener, and the season packet from the chicken flavor Ramen Noodle packet. Stir until monkfruit is dissolved. The dressing will be a little thick, but that is the right consistency. After the dressing is made, set aside.
  2. Pour the broccoli slaw into a bowl and chop into small pieces with kitchen scissors.
